The US should have an immigration policy proportional to global population.

We pick the total number of immigrants we want to allow each year. A million is a good number I think. And then each country is allowed a number of immigrants equal to their percentage of the world population. So the most populous countries would be allowed the most immigrants: China, India, Brazil, Russia, etc.

This is fair, non-discriminatory, and perfectly diverse.

We aren't obligated to serve a notion of diversity for it's own sake in immigration. If left to those countries, they will just ship us their dregs, why would they not?

We could only admit 700 Norwegians or so.

1) most people and most nations aren’t bad actors

2) the people that want to move to the US and that have the resources and drive will be the middle to upper end of people

3) we have means of recourse for abusers

4) a compromise could be imposing some limited form of merit-based immigration

You’re off by a factor of 10 - the amount would be about 7,000 - but you get the idea.

I'll stand by my math 0.07% of 1,000,000 = .0007 * 1000000 = 700.

You’re right. Stupid iPhone calculator doesn’t allow values over a billion when in portrait mode. So when I did the calculation I did it against 700,000,000 instead of 7,000,000,000. Flipped to landscape and was able to perform the correct calculation.
